I have discovered that I cannot copy and paste cells from Excel or indeed any file format into grid edit if I am using Chrome. But this can be done Internet Explorer. Have others experienced the same issue and did someone manage to get around this issue rather than using IE.
But I know that is not what you meant :) I don't know a way to paste to Chrome.
In my opinion, for users, actually IE is fast enough and has the most features.
For developers where speed is everything Chrome is the best because its the fastest.
FF is in the middle. Probably faster than IE, but not as many features, but more features than Chrome.
We are aware of this issue, the problem however is not within QuickBase, it is completely dependent on the source of the data and where it is being pasted. At this time we are unaware of any way around this problem, but it is possible that with future updates to browsers this functionality may become available. In the meantime I would suggest making use of the Import from clipboard or Import from file functions.
When you say via clip board, is this not I am doing when I am copying a cell from Excel and pasting in a cell in grid edit in QB?
Importing via clipboard will get you almost exactly the same functionality of pasting directly into Grid Edit without having to hassle with how your browser handles the Paste function.
